Ingredients
Method
 
  • For the meatballs:
  • 300 g minced organic turkey
  • 50 g breadcrumbs
  • 1 organic egg
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds, lightly toasted, and crushed in a pestle and mortar
  • 50 g ricotta
  • Grated zest of ½ lemon
  • Pinch of dried chilli flakes
  • Small bunch of flatleaf parsley, finely chopped
  • Salt
  • For the sauce:
  • Olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 400 ml passata
  • 200 g purple sprouting broccoli, chopped (when not in season, standard broccoli may be used instead)
For the meatballs:

Mix all the ingredients well. Shape into small meatballs. Fry in olive oil in a medium hot pan until cooked through and golden on the outside. Chill.


For the sauce:

Sweat the garlic in olive oil until soft. Add the passata, and bring to a boil. Now add the broccoli. Cook until almost al dente (this will take anything from a couple of minutes to 7-8 minutes, depending on the variety of broccoli and the size of the pieces). Add the meatballs, and simmer until they are heated through.

Serve with plenty of Parmesan.
